Switching ESN's and pricing?

So what I am worried about is this>>>

I have had unlimited data since the early 90's and still do as I never changed plans or done anything stupid with my account. Will I still have that luxury of the SAME PLAN and rates as I have now with Tbolt?

Andy, your unlmited data plan is grandfathered in. I've switched from the iPhone to Thunderbolt and vice-versa and never had any problems. I would suggest you call in to customer service to activate it to ensure that nothing is dropped. You'll be fine though.

Yes, you'll be fine. I think the unlimited 3G data and unlimited 4G data are the same feature code in the billing system. My father's line was on unlimited data before the plan changed, and then he upgraded to the Thunderbolt. He kept unlimited data.

 

Where I'm worried is that the next time I leave the U.S. and need to switch to an old BlackBerry, will I be able to switch back to unlimited data. My guess is no.

 

EDIT: Be aware, though, that this is more than an simple ESN change because a 4G SIM has to be added to your account. You'll type in the IMEI to the system, and it will say, "Oh, you actually need to give me your SIM card number." That's not really a problem; just something to be aware of.
